The Jesus thread was closed, but this pos is still open?

I was thinking the same thing but I didn't want to say anything. This has deteriorated far more than the Jesus thread. But the fact that it's still here speaks volumes.

Mind you I don't believe in closing threads. I do believe in deleting offensive posts but then I'm not a mod. So whattayagunnado?

You've never said anything intelligent in your whole goddam life have you. Of all the idiotic non-entities on this forum you must be one of the worst, all you post is crap.

Re: Racism and sexism are killing the US economy. Thoughts?

Threads like this derail often because many people do not want to understand that there is no right or wrong answer to such complex issues. Once people understand this, it's much easier to show respect to other people's opinion and their life experience.

I am for example, quite against positive discrimination, even though I am, was, and will always be in a minority regarding at least my professional life- being a woman in a mostly male profession. I was also living for many, many years in a country where being a woman from Eastern Europe, and especially Bulgaria, was very difficult, and I know very well what discrimination means- not being able to have basic facilities other people have just because you are not from the right place, not the right name, not the right sex, etc. I am now back home and it's so much easier having just the problem of being a woman.

This being said, I don't want to always have a question mark next to my work. I don't want to have a job just because I am a woman. The huge problem with positive discrimination is that it embitters (empoisons?!? don't know the exact English word) the majority. The more positive discrimination, the more "food" for malice. The final goal being to respect each other equally, it's impossible to achieve it in with grudge.

I believe there are other means of battling discrimination. I know that, just one example, I will have to be times better than most men, as I had to be times better than locals in the country I lived in. But this is what it is.. It was/is/will be difficult for me, but if I have a daughter one day, she will have it easier.

Blacks constitute 39.8% of welfare recipients, but make up only 12.6% of the US population. Whites, including white hispanics, constitute 38.8% of welfare recipients, but make up 72.4% of the US population. Asians make up 2.4% of welfare recipients and comprise 4.8% of the US population.
